Are you wondering which charities and NGOs you can support to make a difference in the lives of the Helderberg community? Somerset Mall contributes to a number of charity initiatives throughout the Helderberg region and further afield, so we thought we’d point out a few worthy causes that would value a donation to support the great work they’re doing.
The ACVV is the oldest South African non-profit organisation in the social services field. Their services include social work and child protection; early childhood development; older persons and special needs; as well as leadership and training. Here’s the contact email for ACVV Strand.
Animal Welfare Society
The Animal Welfare Society is a non-profit organisation with the aim to serve the community by taking care of unwanted, mistreated and neglected pets. They also advocate and promote the sterilisation of cats and dogs to curb unwanted breeding in an already overpopulated pet community. They sterilise, dip, vaccinate, deworm and treat illnesses of animals in low-income communities and provide a safe haven for homeless or surrendered animals until they're able to place them in good, loving homes. At any given time, they house an average of 150 animals. Here’s the contact email for Animal Welfare Society.
Child Welfare South Africa (Helderberg)
This initiative's main emphasis is child protection services, as well as promoting the development, interests, safety, and well-being of vulnerable children throughout the region. Here’s the contact email for Child Welfare South Africa (Helderberg).
Heartlands Baby Sanctuary
Heartlands is located in Somerset West and is a registered child and youth care centre and a paediatric hospice. It provides short-term residential care for abandoned, abused and neglected children, as well as children diagnosed with life-limiting and life-threatening illnesses such as malnutrition, HIV/AIDS, cancer, tuberculosis and other illnesses. Here’s the contact email for Heartlands Baby Sanctuary.
Helderberg Hospice provides skilled and compassionate support to people of the Helderberg community who are faced with life-threating illnesses. Often associated with cancer care, Helderberg Hospice also helps with any end-stage illnesses, as well as Motor Neurone Disease and HIV/AIDS in an honest, ethical, compassionate and transparent way. Here’s the contact email for Helderberg Hospice.
